"XHamster Virus Alert"
 
   My computer was infected twice in the last 3 days with Trojan programs and Malware from XHamster. I won't be going there again.

I have MS Security Essentials and Spybot, both are up to date and enabled to detect stuff real time.

The first one was Backdoor:Win32/Cycbot.B and the second was AntiVirus Action, a malware program. Both switch your server settings in MS Explorer. I don't know if using Firefox would have prevented this. BTW, I did not download anything knowingly. I did click to view the videos and the viruses must have been embedded in them.

It was a time consuming pain to get rid of both, but it can be done with some help from CNet and other sites on the web.

Just a warning to others.......

I've visited that site frequently, but I'm using Ubuntu linux as an Operating System and Firefox as my web browser. Do I have anything to worry about or this just relevant to Microsoft users?

   What else do the viruses do besides switch server settings in MS Explorer? And is it Internet Explorer or just the file system navigator (Explorer)?

I use Firefox and Semantec's Internet security.

   The Trojan slows everything in your computer to a crawl and uses it as part of a massive bot; in other words it makes your computer a zombie.

The AntiVirus Action doesn't allow you to do anything other than pay it money. It holds your computer hostage until you pay money.

You have to shut down the computer, reboot in safe mode, change the proxy server settings, download software to get rid of it, run scans and then reboot, etc

If you want a detailed description, Google the names of the viruses in my initial post.

   Was just their today at that site but nothing happened (yet). I use ESET Smart Security as virus protection. I have try many that don't work but this one does so don't mind shilling for them.

I had the same thing happen with Spankwire. It literally destroyed my computer; that or trying to remove it with SuperAntiSpyware did. Either way it was devastating.

Now, I've created a new user on my comp that has no installation authorization hoping that will stop it. I also uninstalled SuperAntiSpyware just in case.

I've noticed xhamster videos are really slow and slow down my system but that's only with xhamster videos. Now it makes sense

   Man, that's too bad. I've never had any problems with Xhamster but maybe it's time to steer clear. I've been a member of it for at least a year, and I've got lots of saved videos. I'll miss some of them, but I've got just as many on xxxbunker, slutload, xvideo and pornhub.

   Since I have been using Kaspersky I have not had any problems.

Is there a way to selective block websites?

   On many of the porn websites I go to as soon as I click on something a second page opens up, and it's usually for "creative live jasmine." Is there some way to stop that from happening? And, pardon my ignorance, but is this "creative live jasmine" page considered a virus?

   There are many types of viruses, some more damaging than others. Are you getting a popup saying theres are girls in your city just dying to see you? They read your PC's ip address to get your location and likely installed marketing software that can track where you go on the internet or display popups of interest to you. I recently got one, even though I have virus protection, etc., that installed an ad called ThinkPoint that basically took over my desktop and IE in order to coerce me into sending them credit card info to buy virus protection. That was a bitch to get rid of. Other more serious viruses will cripple your windows registry. Many of the links that you click on from a "safe" site take you elsewhere on the internet that are not so safe.

   This one, which keeps appearing when I log on to porn sites, tries to get me to sign up to watch live webcam shows.

mac. no virus. no virus protection software, no nothing, ever.

i safely surf wherever i want and every now and then some malware
site will force download a malware virus.

the mac says "you just downloaded an application do you want to run it?"

and I say "no" and that's it. but even if I said "yes" it wouldn't
load because it's a windows file.

i've heard over the last 15 years how 'someday' there will be some virus
for the mac, but the system is set up to ask and confirm before
any application is downloaded. it happens with all apps that I intentionally
download too.

all this time, no waiting for virus scan. no paying for anti-virus software.
no safe mode booting to deconfigure anything...

I agree with McNasty, Mac only here and I haven't had any trouble with virus, malware, trojans, adware or anything since I switched over 8 years ago. I can't tell you the amount of money I have saved not only by not having to buy anti-virus software but the untoll time and money from not having to deal with this crap. Also the hardware last twice as long as PC machine, making Macs much cheaper in the long run.

I feel for you PC guys struggling and getting butt fucked not only by the hackers but also the "legit" companies hawking their anti-virus patches at you.

Also Is so great not having to be forced to download I don't know how many patches a month from MS to correct their flawed OS and gumming up the hard drive with 1000's of patches. (and don't try to tell me it ain't true. I was windows user once), before I saw the light

An even better solution is switching to/installing the the Ubuntu desktop which uses a Linux Operating System. Not only have I not had any problems with viruses, maleware, trojans, .... since I've started using it, I haven't had to outlay gigantic sums of cash to Steve Jobs or Bill Gates either. The Ubuntu Operating System is absolutely, 100% FREE. Visit their website at http://www.ubuntu.com for further details.

Open Source Software rocks!!!
